Re: Osteoporosis Medication Options
I was feeling old beyond my years. I'm only 31, but even last week, I felt like I was a senior citizen. I had a DEXA scan last year, and I was told I was borderline osetopenia, and advised to take calcium supplements. I bought a bottle of Oscal, and after finishing the bottle, didn't buy any more; I thought just drinking 2 heaping glasses of milk every day would suffice. Needless to say last week I bought CitraCal, and after taking the first pill I felt much more energized; I almost felt my age again.
I was going to get another DEXA scan, but I was told that my insurance will not cover it this soon. So I figured, the hell with it, the treatment is basically the same for the worst case scenario. But be sure, I will definitely keep taking my calcium citrate every single day! That stuff is a God-send.
